Keeping Things Inside The Heart - Poem by RIC BASTASA

to keep the balance of what we think and what we do
we keep some things inside our heart
there is a home for all the doubts
there is a place proper for certainties

groping for stability of this little universe of the mind
we must only say what is needed
the rest are useless as they do not serve any purpose at all
what use are the angry words? those unkind letters?
somehow we must have a place to stay to keep us sane
to make our defenses against those that invade us
the tide of their opinions, the storms of their abstractions
we keep an anchor
we must disregard all the other tempting possibilities
they after all do not exist yet

we do not mind anymore what destroys us
we all throw the demons away
we keep the angels
we stay in the comfort of our heavens

in our silence we take this journey
love and mercy, we are together always.
